Brand new Mar 3, 2008

I used an old one for about 4 years. I didn't want to change it because I thought that customers and colleagues knew me like that but my husband said that I was getting older yes, haha, and that he could take a nicer one outdoors (cause the other one was too formal and static). Last year, in August he took this one in the countryside. I am very pleased with it

2-3 years Mar 3, 2008

Can't remember really, but I went for 1-2 years. Anyway, expect to see this same photo until I'm at least 60, cause I don't intend to change it anytime soon (and I'm still a long way away from 60).

I ticked "brand new" for my photo, but it was actually taken 6 months ago. I chose it because it makes me look nice (nicer than my previous one which was about 2 years old).
I believe Queen Victoria kept her image on the coinage as a very young queen (aged about 18) - the "bun penny" - until she was well into her sixties, when at last the later image of the stately old lady was substituted.
Regards,
Jenny

Quite old Mar 3, 2008

I use dancing Siva image. Suppose it's approximately 3000 year old or even more.

Brand new Mar 3, 2008

The picture you see right now was taken last February 15th.
But it is similar in concept to the previous one (taken in February 2006): from my daughter's birthday party. It's impossible to imagine myself happier than that!

...which was probably a huge shock for all her subjects ...
Ok, I'll consider changing the photo before I turn into a stately old lady (if I ever do!).

Photo new,subject not Mar 3, 2008

The photo is quite new, unfortunately Iam not so young and fresh anymore... The cat with me is my beloved cat, who can be quite a pest when I try to work he jumps on the keys and demands attention.

I am missing the option for "Between brand new and 1 year old" Mar 3, 2008

I put up a new photo last May - finally a proper one, taken by a professional photographer.

Other Mar 3, 2008

I have been using the same image for ages, can't remember how long now. But it is not a picture of myself - it is just an image to help potential clients quickly identify an important component of my services, which is Canadian French.

I probably never will upload a picture of myself. I don't like to put personal information on the net unless absolutely necessary. On the other hand, the clients I have a friendly relationship with get pictures of me. I don't mind that my clients can put a face on the name (in fact, it's nice and it even helps the business relationship) - but I would mind the whole wide world knowing what I look like.

Ten months old - ticked 1-2 years Mar 3, 2008

It might be looking quite dry, but in fact I am on the Danube here during the last conference in Budapest. The picture was taken by a wonderful colleague of ours who has bright colored feathers and repeats everything she hears

Powwow Mar 3, 2008

I use one taken at Powwow in 2006. Last year I changed the haircut but later came back to the hairdresser with this photo and asked him make the haircut as previously. I hate all kind of photos because I look ugly and always minimum 10 years older ;-(

Almost 6 years old Mar 3, 2008

Our picture was taken on our wedding date, almost 6 years ago. We do not think of changing it since people recognizes us for it.

My look did not change much yet ever since. My wife, on the other hand, becomes more and more beautiful as the years go by.

3 years or so Mar 4, 2008

This is part of a picture taken by one of my students, it is at least 3 years old, I will change it for a new one, one of these months, and I will probably look better.
